Real Madrid fired coach Carlo Ancelotti on Monday as the Spanish club again showed it won't tolerate a season without a major trophy. Ancelotti was let go despite being popular among both players and fans and having led Madrid to its 10th European Cup title just a year ago. This season the team finished second in the Spanish league - two points behind archrival Barcelona - lost in the Champions League semifinals to Juventus and exited the Copa del Rey against crosstown rival Atletico Madrid.

Wilmer Flores hit a tiebreaking three-run homer off Justin De Fratus in the sixth inning to help Bartolo Colon win a day after the pitcher's 42nd birthday, and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 Monday to stop a three-game losing streak.
